Sunday Morning Angst

This is making the rounds, but what the hell... it suits my mood.

I'm not sure what it is about Garfield that makes it so ripe for deconstruction. Surely the Peanuts played more on existential themes. Anyway, I loved Garfield when I was about seven, but lost interest shortly after I discovered Bloom County. But there's something about Garfield's very mediocrity that leaves a particularly bitter tang on the palate when re-rendered as a tale of insanity and pain.

But damn... no amount of re-mixing can top Jim Davis in a black fucking mood.




Mmmmm... lasagna with a side of bitter almond.
